Dublin Player Diarmuid Connolly
Dublin’s Diarmuid Connolly In Action Against Laois In 2016

It was reported only a couple of days ago that Dublin’s Diarmuid Connolly had accepted the 12 Week ban handed down to him by the CCCC for an incident with linesman Ciaran Brannigan during the Leinster SFC quarter final against Carlow.

But that is not the case as the St Vincent’s star is set to appeal the hefty punishment that would have seen the forward unavailable to play until a potential All Ireland semi-final on the 27th of August.

Connolly will have his case heard by the Central Hearings Committee in the coming days.
